I thought this little mushroom looked like he was wearing a straw hat. I have no idea what kind of mushroom it is, but liked it's almost lacelike frills.

I took this after Julie, Malia and I turned back on the trail to Paradise Ridge, above Carson, Washington where we live. I was so tired at this point I just sat right down in the wet ground for this photo, I've never been so dirty as I was after this trip, taking photos of all the mushrooms we found.

LOL, yes it does look like straw hat... Nice shot, good DOF, colours and details. I don't know what it called either, I am sure TN member will know. :)

Belle et intressante composition macro-photographique bien ralise pour ce superbe champignon. Jolies couleurs, bon point de vue et bonne nettet.
Interesting & well done !

A very nice image with good lighting. The fungus is likly to be an Entoloma sp. well my best guess

Dobra fotka Lori, czu zapach lasu.
Well done.

The battered hat look suits it well. well seen lori a nice capture especially when tired it is so easy to forget to set it up right. TFS

I did it at a board meeting the other day... bent down on wet ground without giving it a second thought to take a photo and when I got up my trousers were messed up. :) I didn't mind though. :) Nice composition and details Lori. It does look like a straw hat. Very well done.

Nice DOF and isolation of the subject. The background is mostly not distracting (the bright green leaf behind is a bit bright)
